A fun Pillowcase Trick or Treat Bag tutorial! Perfect for older kids to collect their Halloween candy in!
Halloween is near and I’m excited that I get to help in my daughters preschool class for their Halloween party this year! I had this idea just pop in my head a few weeks ago and I immediately got so excited and had to try to make them right away! So, when it worked out, just like I pictured in my head, I was super stoked! Today I am sharing how to make these super simple DIY Halloween Posterboard Placemats!!

I can’t even tell you how excited I am to have Halloween content going up on my blog! That means FALL IS HERE! Literally if you could see me I have a huge grin on my face! We LOVE Fall in this home! Today I am sharing a fun Halloween Test Tube Treat and Printable Tag with you fine friends!
My kids always have a Halloween party at school and we’ve kind of made it a tradition to take in something a little extra fun to their class! The other day we were walking into Target just as they were pulling out their Dollar Spot Halloween stuff and my son saw the test tubes and thought they were so cool! So, I grabbed them and decided to roll with it!
To start you’ll need to gather your supplies:
- Plastic Candy Test Tubes
- Printable Treat Tags (download below)
- Distress Ink or Crayon
- Bakers Twine (I used black and white)
- Embellishments (optional)
- A fun treat – I went with mini M&M’s.
You can get the plastic test tubes all over the place – party stores, Amazon, etc. You can also search Gumball tubes. I prefer the ones with flat bottoms, but they do make them with rounded bottoms more true to an actual test tube. So, go with whatever look you like the most!
To get started – go ahead and download my printable tags using the link below. I highly suggest printing them on cardstock.
The file above is in JPG format and can printed at home using your printer or sent to a print shop if you prefer.
Once printed, cut them out. I then I like to take my distressing ink and ink the edges. It helps give a more worn and finished look. I used my vintage (brown) distressing ink this day. If you don’t have distressing ink, a crayon is another easy way you could accomplish this look.
You don’t have to use embellishments if you want to keep the cost down or can’t find any cute ones, but I thought it added a fun little look. As for the bakers twine – to go along with my theme I used just a plain black and white.
Once your tags are cut, then use a small mini hole puncher or the end of some scissors to create a small hole in the top of the printable tag to thread the bakers twice through. Then go ahead and thread your bakers twine!
Next, take your candy and fill your test tubes. Again, I just used mini M&M’s, but you can really fill them with whatever candy you’d like! Then go ahead and cork the top!
Lastly, tie your bakers twine around the top of your test tube and add any embellishments you want.
The embellishments I used had a small sticky circle on the back that helped secure the bakers twine in place when I pushed it onto the top. But, if you don’t use any embellishments and feel like it needs a little securing, don’t hesitate to use your hot glue gun to just dab a tiny dot of hot glue on the knot. That way it will secure the twine to the test tube and there will be no movement.
The treats still look really cute, even without embellishments! So, don’t stress if you don’t want to find any!
I hope you and your kiddos enjoy this fun treat this Halloween season!

I’m not sure if I’ve ever confessed my love for donuts on this blog! They are literally my #1 favorite treat! You just can’t beat a super yummy donut! And I probably shouldn’t admit it, but I eat at least 2-3 a week! haha! I’ve totally been loving all the fun Halloween Donut Treat Ideas I’ve seen all over Pinterst and I’m thinking I may have to have a fun girls night where I have just tables of fun donuts for us to eat on! It could be fun for a kids party too obviously, but for some reason, this just screams girls night!
Today I’m sharing with you all these fabulous and fun ideas that I would want to have at my party!
They’re all so fun, right? I know they’re gonna be a hit this Halloween!
Hey friends! I live in a neighborhood that is BOOMING with young kids and although I hope the 2 large bags of candy that I bought will be enough, I’m afraid it just may not be. So, I put together this Halloween Out of Candy Printable is going to come in so handy this year once I run out!
I designed it as a 8.5×11 and so all you have to do is print it and hang it on the door! I suggest printing it on cardstock too!
You can even just tape it on the door with some cute washi tape!

Happy October friends! I am excited to share with you guys what we have planned for our Halloween themed family dinner this year – Pumpkin Soup! My kids are young, so we went with a super easy and kid friendly dinner!
This recipe is so creamy and tasty! You and your kids will love it!
- 1 Medium Pumpkin (cooked and peeled)
- 8 oz of cream cheese (room temperature)
- 1 bell pepper (color/taste of choice green, yellow, orange, red)
- 3 medium potatoes
- 1 large sweet onion
- Chicken Stock
- 1/4 cup of butter
- Salt & Pepper
Take 1/4 cup butter and saute your chopped onion and bell peppers in the bottom of your pot until they are transleucent. Once cooked, add your potatoes and pumpkin. Add chicken stock to your pot, until all the food is completely covered. Cook on medium until all the vegetables are soft and cooked through.
Use an immerson blender to blend everything together until smooth. Add 8oz of room temperature cream cheese. Allow to sit for a few minutes to soften and then blend into the soup. Add salt and pepper to taste. Turn the heat down to low and simmer for 20-30 minutes.
You may have seen on my social media last week how I’ve teamed up with Vanity Fair Napkins to Bring Back the Table! It is such an awesome movement they are creating you guys! It’s all about getting families to pledge to eat dinner together more!
I loved this idea and movement so much, because I feel like even with my 3 young kids, life is already getting so busy. It is so easy to be tempted to skip sitting down as a family for dinner, but I recognize how important it is to try and accomplish this as often as possible! Here are few tips that have helped me make it more possible:
1) Menu Plan – if you know ahead of time what you’re cooking, it just seems 100% times easier!
3) Have some quick and easy go to meals on deck! I have a handful of favorite recipes that I almost always have the ingredients to. Here is a great list of ideas: 15 Super Easy Go-To Meals!
If you’re wanting some fun Halloween names for your food, here are some suggestions!
Pumpkin Soup: Bat Bile
Breadsticks: Dead Mans Fingers
Homemade Rootbeer: Witches Brew
Green Salad: Bug Salad (a basic salad, but add raisins for the “bugs”)
Sugar Cookies: Monster Eyes

Hey friends! A few weeks ago I kicked off Eighteen25’s 2015 Spooktacular September with these fun Printable Halloween Can Wrappers! Lisa designed these as her farewell post to the blogging world and they turned out so great! These are such a fun and simple decor that could be perfect for your mantel, a table centerpiece or even just for a party! All you need is empty metal soup cans, the printables, and something fun and spooky to place inside.
Lisa used broken twigs that she spray painted with gold and silver paint. She also took black spray paint and sprayed the undersides of baby’s breath to give it a more spooky look.
They are perfect for a mantle or as a centerpiece for a party and you can easily mix and match them!
There are 7 designed printables and 3 striped (black, gray and orange) that you can download here that are all different sizes! Just click the buttons below to download the ZIP files!
